Contemporary China Research Clippings Collection was mainly the work of the Union Research Institute. The Institute collected clippings from approximately 230 Chinese language newspapers and 40 periodicals, published in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia, totally 17 countries or regions between 1950 and the 1970s. These clippings not only cover the political, socio-economic, military, cultural and educational development in China and Taiwan, but also important issues related to Hong Kong and overseas Chinese.
In 2013 and 2014, the Advanced Institute For Contemporary China Studies, Hong Kong Baptist University used the clippings to compile three indexes for researchers' reference. With the consent from the Institute, the Library has created electronic version of these indexes to facilitate online full text searches. If you would like to read the full text of the corresponding clippings, please come to the Special Collections & Archives or contact us at 3411 5937.
